Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 49% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 1 October 2094 at 08:15 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2094 after 22 days on 23 October 2094 at 17:47.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1171 of Meeus index or 2124 from Brown series.
Length of current 1171 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2094. It is 15 minutes longer than next lunation 1172 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠216.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of perigee on 23 September 2094 at 11:57 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 394 848 km (245 347 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 919 km (252 226 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 30 September 2094 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 October 2094 at 09:00 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 13:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.728°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.875° in its southern standstill point on 16 October 2094 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 9 October 2094 at 12:44 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
